Language of Abstraction / Formal Elements of Painting / Observation of Light
Fish's work explores the nuances of color, shape, and line - a concern shared with geometric modernists such as Piet Mondrian, Josef Albers, Agnes Martin, Ellsworth Kelly, Alfred Jensen, Sol Lewitt, Jo Baer, Alighiero Boetti, and Mary Heilman. Fish is also focused on the observation of atmospheric light and how the movement of light shifts one's perception. Studying the effects of light continues a tradition of intensive study by painters such as J.M.W. Turner and Claude Monet (view Turner's work and Monet's Haystack studies at the Art Institute of Chicago).
